    Default Htc one m8 Xperia z2 nexus 5

    Basically I've got an iPhone 4s n I wanna come back now the htc one m8 looks spot on love sense and build quality plus htc advantage looks interesting but the camera is a concern and was looking at potentials if the camera is that bad. I hate Samsung so that's out of the question (the android ***** phone-cheap build **** UI and just generally despise them) had Sony before enjoyed the phones but update roll out was poor and the nexus 5 having no micro sd means I'm limited to 32gb (I have a fair amount of music n wouldn't mind taking pictures) so basically I thought I'd ask in here for opinions

    Cheers

    Yeah looked at g2 briefly as well but that odd back button thing and haven't looked into the UI those 3 were main consideration tbh

    Have you gone to your local carrier store and played with some of the devices? I would suggest doing that to get a feel for them.

    So sounds like it's down to the Xperia Z2 or the Nexus 5.

    I have both and like the Z2 alot better. that said the Nexus 5 is a great device and surprisingly takes great pictures and the performance is good (other than battery life.

    I would opt for the Z2 but the choice is yours.

    I have my money on you opting for the M8 lol

    From what I have read it's actually not that bad and some tech reviews are saying it's better than the 816 13mgp and the one mini 2.

    But it wont be on par with the Z2.

    Decisions Decisions lol

    If camera is a big concern, I would definitely narrow down my choice to either the Z2 or Nexus 5. The camera in the HTC One M7 was horrible and on the M8 there's no OIS so that's another step back.

    Personally I would choose the N5 as it is usually the first one to get the latest Android version.

    And totally missed the huge camera thread on here (searching before posting is a must in future) seems like the camera is getting decent reviews without winning any prizes but still more than capable. Can I now turn this thread to my hatred of samsungs and ask why they're raved about when apart from features people are hardly going to use it gets rave reviews....poor build cheap feel and looks awful and the same. Pretty much every other top end phones beat it? The iPhones of the android world?

    I don't mind the look as much as I mind the performance. The performance is usually not acceptable. At least in my experience.

    Samsung do produce some great products the Note 3 for example.

    The S5 is another failure to implement that change of design in an enforcing way.

    I got fed up with the lack of attention to detail and the rushed products.

    The Note line seems to be one that they are not going overkill with variants. This then seems to be the product that gets the most time and thought. The S5 should of been given the same treatment.

    Samsung did try to change TouchWiz and make the S5 great (but aesthetics much as,some will be in denial, design does count).

    Yeah the note looks the best of the lineup if I had to have a Samsung but the S line of phones all look very similar and making phones for the sake of it rather than trying for the best I'm sure that if they do take an interest in design they could probably actually make something good (May change with next one after change of designer at Samsung but probably not)

    The psychology in brand and this is evident...

    Like Apple now Samsung it seems can throw out anything and many will buy. I don't go solely for design however it is one that is high on the list of many other things. Ok maybe not many as then I would require a Samsung lol

    Seriously I just want decent specs, understand that companies want to push their apps, Samsung is excessive and Sony is light in comparisons :-)

    A Decent Camera

    Storage

    I'm media focused so that's a must be it speakers, headphones and sound enhancement tech.

    Little gimmicks are OK, like knock on/off, Camera tricks like AR just don't weigh it down.

    Battery life must be decent.

    Waterproofing and Dust resistant are great.

    Things that work.

    I was taught as a drummer that less is more.

    And in some sense this is applicable here.

    Other than that I'm not buying into excessive things like heartrate monitors or fingerprint readers.

    Yeah it does seem that people are buying it just coz of the Samsung name but like I said earlier if people actually spent a bit of time looking at what was available surely they would see the better devices out there it's lazy consumers more than anything

    I can see how apple have become so popular the iphone is actually a great phone and very well made everything works really well and is very fluid and smooth to operate and it's simplicity is great I can see why people go for it. Buy it turn it on enter info download apps, but I thought android was more for people who took a bit of thought towards their device and this Samsung sheep mentality is hurting other companies especially htc who don't particularly have another division to fall back on if they make losses and the lack of apparent care/ passion towards what they produce especially with the galaxy s range angers me a bit really
